The Atlanta Braves are getting into the NFT space to take even more currency from their fans.
So the Atlanta Braves have a World Series Champions NFT Collection for legions of Braves Country to throw their money away at willingly.
It does not matter what NFT even stands for or what it is even about, it is just a new, fun and creative way to lose more money. No matter if it is cryptocurrency or cold, hard cash, that money is going to be gone faster than you can say Truist Park. After having already ventured into the metaverse, the Braves are doing their part to assert last year’s dominance over many dimensions.
Real world or fake news, the Braves want you to know they won something of great importance.
The 2021 #Braves World Series Champions NFT Collection is LIVE!
Commemorate the historic season with three NFTs: the World Series ring, epic moments from the 2021 Postseason and the World Series flag.

Atlanta Braves want you to bid on their World Series Champions NFT Collection
Braves Country may not be the smartest baseball fans to walk this earth, but they are not stupid. As P.T. Barnum once said, “A sucker is born every minute.” That man pushed alleged Fiji mermaids and all other oddities to hapless New Yorkers in the 1840s. In the generations that have passed, while technology has improved, we are as dumb as we ever were. Take all of our money, dammit!
So when the cyborgs inevitably take over because we elected some doofus with major clout in the metaverse to be the leader of the free world, expect for noted scribes like yours truly to be living in abject poverty because a 32-year-old brain cannot possibly comprehend what an NFT is. The time value of money was a total game-changer, but people are making up new currencies all willy-nilly.
There may be trillions of articles out there about expressing the superb vernacular about all the inner workings of NFTs. Too bad bandwidth is a mental construct I am not willing to waste like Ben Simmons’ career. I will watch the games on Bally, I will have a couple pops at The Battery and I will defend Ronald Acuña Jr. to the death like he is a family member. But no, I will not bid on any NFT.
It’s only Monday, y’all. Can May 6th be here yesterday because we are losing our collective minds?
